Homemade Hot Chocolate

Yesterday was a rather gloomy day around these parts, and so it seemed like perfect hot chocolate weather. It also seemed like perfect soup weather, but since I’m still in holiday hibernation mode we had pizza! Hot chocolate however, is something I can handle! I don’t know if you’ve ever had the Williams-Sonoma hot chocolate, […]

Strawberry Lemonade with a Hint of Mint

This should have been my first Vita-mix smoothie recipe, but alas my Vita-mix plans were foiled by the new air conditioner that we needed to buy this week. There’s nothing like spending two weeks in un-air conditioned discomfort… in south Texas,¬†to make a person appreciate a nice cool beverage! This is basically a combination lemonade/smoothie. […]

Ladies Who Lunch: My Birthday!

I have a great group of friends, and for my birthday they threw me a little afternoon cocktail celebration! It was all vintage housewife, and it was so much fun that I completely lost track of time and ended up being late for dinner with my family (I might have to do a post on […]

Brazilian Lemonade

I was going to make some snappy title about going out and¬†getting a Brazilian, but then I remembered that I share this blog with my sister, and that she might not appreciate my quirky sense of humor!

Frozen Hot Chocolate

This seemed like a good treat for all of us last night. There was a little celebrating going on because I finished my first sprint triathlon. I have been participating in an open water swim clinic put on by the parks & rec department and the final class was a mini tri to get us […]

Chocolate Milk (almost) Straight from the Cow

We love our cows. To be honest, they did take some getting used to. I think we took some getting used to for them too. I was frightened at the beginning – Jason kept telling me to let them know who was boss, but I wasn’t sure how to do that. But it’s been pretty […]

Italian Soda

My husband and I went on a much needed vacation to Italy last month, and while we were there I drank absolutely no Italian sodas! I’m not quite sure if these are authentic or not. I buy the syrup at Cost Plus World Market, so maybe that makes them international!! None of this seems super […]

Smoothies 2 Ways

If you have kids who don’t like to eat their fruits and veggies, chances are you’ve tried to give them smoothies. Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? Today we’re going to show you the way we each make smoothies for our families. Sarah’s Version: Now, I’m all for being healthy, but I also need a […]
